Inclusion is such a wonderful opportunity for students with disabilities. Inclusion provides the opportunity for students with disabilities to have access to the general education curriculum and classroom which also gives them the opportunity to socialize with their peers.
I want to give my students all of the opportunities that they deserve.
My students love being in the general education setting. They are inquisitive and want to learn all that they can. They are such quick learners, too! Our school was hit hard by Hurricane Harvey, leaving many of our students without the tools they need for success. Our theme this year is construction. Our district is growing by leaps and bounds and learners are always under construction to become better. My students may lack the tools they need for accessibility, but they are very eager to learn all that they can.
These Chromebooks and headsets will give my students the ability to participate in written classroom activities through voice to text features. The Chromebooks will also be able to read the selections to the students. They will be able to talk to the computer and have what they want to say written right on the page.
These Chromebooks will give my students accessibility that will create equity in the classroom.
With that equity, we will be leveling the playing field for these students. They will be able to participate on a much greater level in classroom assignments. Sometimes things like quick notes or quick writes can be much more time consuming for my students. These Chromebooks will help my students stay up to speed and get the most out of their learning experience.
